I call this “The Stop Box”. Douglas Fir, Curly Maple (Bottom and Inner Lid), Hard Maple Hinge/Latch and Pins). Table Saw, Router (Table-Mounted), Drill Press, Spindle Sander, Ryoba Saw, #4 Smoothing Plane, A couple Chisels. Hand sanded, Wax-Free Shellac Sealer, 5 coats Wipe-On Poly, Rubbed out and waxed. Sold to the first person I casually showed it to. So I had to build another that I just finished. Slightly altered in that the hinge/latch assembly tapers down the sides and is Cherry instead of Maple. I have a gallery of shots I took as I built it at http://www.jefflindeman.com/galleries/octagon-box/
